Top Ten Reasons Why Old Nickelodeon is Better Than Modern Nickelodeon


The Top Ten

1 Old Nick had better shows

Some examples were Legends of the Hidden Temple, Catdog, Rugrats, Ren And Stimpy, and old SpongeBob. Today, it's crap like Breadwinners or Sanjay And Craig. - OhioStateBuckeyes

So much better shows, these were the days. Current shows are ruining kids minds.

I miss Icarly, rugrats, blues clues, and jacks big music show now they have bubble guppies and a crappy dora spinoff - Ihateschool

Dora was a bad apple since the start. And I didn't really care for rocket power. - Kid_ethinederland

I watch old nick and I’m almost 14 - soccerobsessed

2 Nick Gas

And they literally screwed it up. Plus we had Ariana Grande once on Nickelodeon. Disney is better than Nickelodeon, even though it sometimes welcomes Ariana Grande to make my ear bleed big time.

Why can't they bring back Double Dare? They brought back Figure It Out. - OhioStateBuckeyes

Double Dare is coming back, but the commercials are disturbing - ShopkinsLover

Now they joke about gas. I miss old nick - soccerobsessed

3 Old Nick was more appropriate

Now all the shows are about suicide or butts. - OhioStateBuckeyes

And controversial (Ren & Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life) - Kid_ethinederland

4 Better educational programming

Blues Clues was a crap show, but at least they didn't have Dora The Explorer at the time.

We will never forget Blues Clues! - OhioStateBuckeyes

Yup. Blues Clues and Jacks Big Music Show were great - soccerobsessed

Back in the 80's, Nickelodeon aired high-quality educational documentaries. In the 90's and 00's, at least Nick Jr. had highly educational shows. Nowadays, not even the Nick Jr. shows seem to be educational. This is what I have observed at least. - anonygirl

5 It was actually creative

You choose. CatDog and Doug or Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners. Choose wisely or immediate death (not really) - FrozenisOverrated

Now they're just running outta ideas. - OhioStateBuckeyes

6 Boring Sitcoms

Horrible sitcoms. Old Nickelodeon had Kenan & Kel and Drake & Josh which were actually funny while nowadays they have Game Shakers which isn't funny - PeeledBanana

yes! - Anonymousxcxc

Just like Big time rush and Fred;The show.

7 Patrick wasn't such a jerk

They ruined one of the best characters:( - nintendofan126

Only in Seasons 4 - 9. In Seasons 10 and above, Patrick wasn't quite a jerk.

Hey Hey spongebob

8 Only one show from the past 15 years is still around

SpongeBob and FOP or just SpongeBob - themets05


But it’s gone downhill - soccerobsessed

Top 3 Longest Running Nickelodeon Shows
1. SpongeBob SquarePants
2. Rugrats
3. The Fairly OddParents - PeeledBanana

9 They didn't air educational crap on Nick back then

Well this "educational crap" shaped the childhood of millions - PeeledBanana

They kind of did. But it was actually good - soccerobsessed

That was back in the 70s and 80s. Then one bad year in 1988, they added Nick Jr.

10 The jokes barely qualify as jokes.

The Contenders

11 They think their product is amazing.
12 Way too much Nick Jr.
13 The Jimmy/Timmy crossover was the only good crossover on Nick

And I love both shows. - PizzaGuy

14 Most of their shows are the same thing with minor changes.

Correction: with MAJOR changes
